           Summary: [RTMP] Cannot play a specific live stream
           Product: Libav
           Version: git HEAD
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Normal
         Component: libavformat
        AssignedTo: bugzilla at libav.org
        ReportedBy: samuel.pitoiset at gmail.com


I confirm the bug pinpointed here
https://lists.ffmpeg.org/pipermail/libav-user/2012-May/001905.html .

Indeed, avplay cannot play this rtmp live stream
rtmp://flashcloud.mediacdn.com/live/kontratv.flv . However, it works with

After checking packets by using wireshark, I have a diagnostic.

Actually, this live stream can be played with avplay by defining explicitely
the playpath like -rtmp_playpath kontratv.

rtmpdump sends kontratv as the playpath and avplay sends kontratv.flv.

So, I think it's useless to send the extension but I'll have to do some tests
in order to be sure.

Let me fix that.
